Can you afford to travel to work? 18/04/2024

With current cost of living pressures, high fuel and public transport costs, many face the reality that the expense of commuting to work is becoming financially unsustainable. Combined with city design limitations, flexible work arrangements may be the solution to help ease the situation.

Can Australian cities become more commuter-friendly, or will commutes become unaffordable? UNSW Business School and UNSW Arts, Design & Architecture, Design & Architecture experts shed light on the situation:

Can you afford to travel to work? Can Australian cities adapt to become more commuter-friendly or will the financial burden of travel force a fundamental shift in work arrangements?

The Business Of : Back to basics – finance 101 for small to medium enterprises 12/04/2024

Did you know that 99.8% of Australian businesses are small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs)? That’s your friendly neighbourhood shops, cafes, and real estate agents – the backbone of our economy. The size range for SMEs is broad, with small businesses employing up to 19 and medium businesses reaching up to 199.

Most entrepreneurs start small - whether it’s a full-time gig or a side hustle. Regardless of the shape and size of the business - knowing how to finance and budget for business growth is imperative.

In the latest episode of The Business Of podcast, Associate Professor Kristle Romero Cortes from the UNSW School of Banking and Finance talks about the basics of SME finance, from market flows to the cost of capital.

The Business Of : Back to basics – finance 101 for small to medium enterprises So, you want to start a business. And no matter how big your ambitions are, chances are you’re going to start small as one of the 99.8% of businesses in Australia that operate as small-to-me...

The team tackled a complex acquisition scenario involving leading beverage brands. Over two days, they presented a compelling pitch to a panel of senior managing directors from top investment banks. Their work and expertise ultimately secured them first place. 👏

The prize money will help them continue honing their skills and compete in international competitions across Europe and the APAC region. We look forward to their continued success!

Right to Disconnect: Will it work? And what does it mean? 01/04/2024

The ‘right to disconnect’ has been gaining traction globally in recent years, and Australia has joined the movement with the recent passing of the Fair Work Amendment (Right to Disconnect) Bill 2023.

“Research suggests that maintaining healthy boundaries between work and personal life is crucial for managing stress. Out-of-hours contact can disrupt much-needed rest and recovery time, potentially exacerbating existing stress,” says Professor Emmanuel Josserand, an expert on the impact of innovation and Director of the Business Insights Institute at UNSW Business School.

Will this new legislation work in Australia, what are the drawbacks, and how will it impact Australian workplaces? Prof. Josserand sheds light on this critical new development:

Right to Disconnect: Will it work? And what does it mean? UNSW Business School Professor Emmanuel Josserand assesses new legislation granting employees the right to disconnect from work outside of business hours.


A bruising public investigation into the Australian superannuation industry found plenty of scope for improvement, particularly in addressing deeply ingrained systemic inequalities.

Katrina McPhee is Chief of Staff at Aware Super, one of the nation’s most significant funds. With a majority-female member base, they’re on a mission to close the ‘gender retirement gap and make more sustainable investments on behalf of their members.

“It’s one thing to have money to retire, but if we don’t have a wonderful world to live in, it feels counterintuitive,” she said. “So climate change and energy transition are really important to us.”

How power dynamics create psychosocial hazards in the workplace 25/03/2024

Imagine Sarah, a talented project manager who is stressed about work. Unrealistic deadlines, conflicting expectations, long days and a lack of support from her manager are taking a toll. This is a classic example of a psychosocial hazard, a workplace stressor that can lead to anxiety and burnout.

According to Safework Australia, work-related psychological injuries have longer recovery times, higher costs, and require more time away from work. These hazards also lead to higher turnover, increased absenteeism, and lower productivity. Is there a solution? Strong management practices and a culture of open communication are key to preventing these issues.

UNSW Business School Professor Michael Quinlan emphasises the importance of understanding power dynamics and genuinely listening to employees' concerns. Learn more about managing psychosocial hazards in our latest article:

How power dynamics create psychosocial hazards in the workplace It can be easy to overlook the subtle connection between power dynamics and mental health in the workplace, yet acknowledging and addressing this link is crucial to minimising psychosocial hazards
